it only enough to change. the anger about the afghan war is mounting in the u.k. to which is the second largest number of troops deployed in the country hundreds of british soldiers have been killed since the conflict began antiwar activists celebrities and politicians are gathering in london protesting over a decade of war that is either bennett reports from the capital. this huge protest center in the center of london has magical sentiment in the public magination here in britain is nearly full from people very angry pay their way there in the first place obviously the period of time of the cuts because sterling has risen through all this money in n.z. really being pumped into a seemingly unwinnable war and will live hundred million as a nation in development aid to the ngos and say well no it's no reaching it's the right people is the only thing you see all going to really having much of an effect on to let you know thousand troops that are being killed in. a us university frowny
12:06 pm
university thirty thousand other people i mean you know in this case. the billions insurgents. want to talk more about this is john hearing from them oh it's a charity war on one show he's very much first in someone's name pulled out of nationalism the human rights situation going on in afghanistan where he says better or worse and it was so nice to get working in the last five years in particular we've seen a terrible problem in human rights this is the poorest escalates here it's failed to bring any extra stability to the scene many more children being sent to drive to their rights and many more being killed a pretty nice collection of us in pakistan as well as in afghanistan because there's another lurching from people who died in indonesia as well so it's not killing that's in any way hearing much much when you present causes also comes with an address the fact there is rampant eruption in afghanistan in the process of getting to the people are really needed but he's playing on the international
12:07 pm
community really said we're nigerian rational goes a trillion dollars on the sea insulate corruption within the whole of the afghan government and the key thing here is about getting the foreign troops out the people in afghanistan now doing britain on the you know here the seventy four percent of the people out troops because that's what we're saying to the government like the early trips i mean you can start dealing with all of the problems. well it's not even john hillery on or on one thanks very much thing to r.c. the process has now moved on after four hours of public speeches by some high profile campaigns including. two thousand people also attended the demonstration the largest and your demonstration in the last few years now marching to downing street to take their protests to prime minister david cameron. well all of them. on the antiwar protest the start of the latest on our twitter feed underscore cobb recent tweet quotes award winning war correspondent john pilger says the war afghanistan was
12:08 pm
a fraud as was the war in iraq and the attack on libya the latest we've got for you don't forget you can also see our footage of the protests as well at our to you tube channel. we can leaks founder julian assange who is among the high profile speakers that antiwar protest in london he spoke to him about the military interventions and the libya conflict in particular. the lesson for libya is that there are only two superpowers in the world worth speaking why one of the united states and europe these two superpowers have gotten together to take over the country the regional justification in the no fly zone over libya has been completely of use it shows the various no effective rule. night in nations is going to be a lesson to us every time that a small mandate is given. military and intelligence. it is a slippery slope that leads to the takeover of countries or hundreds. of people
12:09 pm
rallied in the center of london today demanded an end not only to the afghan war but also to the ongoing intervention in libya where revolutionary forces have launched one of the biggest isolde she had on more market fees hometown of sirte the interim government claims they now control most of the city but they're still facing face resistance from those loyal to the ousted leader despite reports claiming thousands of people have left many more remain meaning there's a high risk of civilian casualties libya's interim leaders say says fall is crucial to formally declaring liberation and shuttling elections but british opposition m.p. jeremy corben told us that in pursuit of this a many are ignoring the high human cost. and i think the media wishes it was over because the whole story was to be a nature intervention could have to disappear libyan new government wasn't quite worked out like that i suspect we're in danger of descended into a civil war within the t.n.c. and i'm also told on the lawn of the reports i'm hearing from human rights moments
12:10 pm
is about the attacks on african people by the t.n.c. forces because they're all believed to be mercenaries working for gadhafi these are african people who went to libya to get jobs and now be in the streets continue and survive so i think it is very disturbing it says a great deal about the rather. dragged into this. pretense of a no fly zone in reality a massive bombing campaign i think six thousand sorties a bombing maybe more taking over libya and huge numbers of civilian casualties this was supposed to be protecting civilians in benghazi shows just how many have died in church already. street unrest seems to cover all parts of the globe these days in the u.s. the occupy wall street movement spread to gazans of american cities including the capital washington d.c. such as anti corporate protests in new york until the fourth week the city's mayor recently lashed out at demonstrators center actions are hurting the economy protest as whoever insists it's the greed of just one percent of the u.s.

12:15 pm
a reality check the u.k. needed a long time ago. we already have inflation of around about five percent in the united kingdom which compared to recent years this is hardly putting more money into the economy risks actually increasing that inflation is supposed to be the bank of england's central key toss to actually keep inflation under control two and a half percent or less my concern is that quantitative easing throwing another suddenly falling billion pounds into the economy is actually a distraction from what the u.k. government needs when you know you very aggressive and radical broad stretch what i think they lack at the moment what we've got to get away from in the united kingdom and actually right across the western world more generally is this every single bank is copper bottomed because if they get into trouble the taxpayer will play all the way out and one of the key things that the u.k. government is struggling with is how do we allow it to go through the wall to fail without actually destroying the wider economy and i think that these these
12:16 pm
downgrades of banks actually reflect the fact that we are beginning to move away from what was a hopeless and helpless situation in which basically every bank you know you crashed when the time when the government would come to their right so it's a grim warning but in the sinai as you would wish to have an almost a toy just from your doctor about your state of health i think it is a welcome warning. now coming up in about five minutes or so you show here on our team is robert foster delves into the depths of the dead straight and global economy is a quick look at what to expect as unique style with this rendition of a recession wrap. the world seems to come towards global ordering of my thoughts of the book and it's an interesting quote we invested much in this enterprise should my guy in it's very demise real economy is something much more to its g.d.p. measured not by our ability to afford but our capacity to really learn to know not place in nature the order of business for mean on this planet ark our pandora.
